In a February survey on income conducted online among 1,000 employees and job seekers, Glassdoor learned that 39% of the respondents do not believe their current rate of pay is fair. This is true of a higher percentage of women (42%) than men (34%). Most of those surveyed (57%) think that it their employer who is in the best position to change this rather than Congress (30%) or the President (14%). According to the survey:
“If employees do not receive a pay increase within one year of starting a job, 62% say they would consider looking for a new job opportunity. However, employees report they would be satisfied with other perks and benefits if a pay raise or cost-of-living increase is not possible from their employer.”
